The News Industry Can’t Talk About It

Captain Jack

Just how broken our Corporate Media is might come as a surprise to most people.

But, just stop and think about it for a minute. Since our news outlets are now governed entirely by profit, there are certain things they must to do maximize those profits.

I’ll give you a hint, providing the real news isn’t the most important thing to the news corporations. It’s profit and nothing but profit that is important to them.

This may sound cynical to many, but think about it. They must maximize their profits or risk being sued.

So, that means they won’t broadcast articles about anything that might reduce their income.

How about the poison destroying our country right now? How about the corrupting influence of money in our elections? Can they tell us about that? Of course not. If we did something about the millions and millions of dollars the wealthy are putting in to destroy our government, those millions of dollars wouldn’t make it to the media in the way of campaign ads.

It’s not in the corporate news’ interest to tell you that money is corrupting our political process. So, they won’t.

  1. There is so much we will never hear from our disaster of a media. They only care about what makes money ant that is a horse race. They try to make everything look like it’s neck and neck, Democrats and Republicans. Well, it’s not neck and neck. It’s not the same criminality on both sides. It’s not that the average American is split between the Republican policies and the Democratic policies. All serious surveys show that the vast majority of Americans, including Republicans, agree with the principles and policies of the Democrats. But you can’t tell that by the news media.

  2. It it time we all realized that our press is the problem. Nothing can be fixed until we fix that.

  3. How sad that we have gotten ourselves in such a mess. It’s almost wound up too tight to unravel.
